A Brief History Of Tennessee Land Surveying
During the early days of European colonization, the land now known as Tennessee was first explored by the Spanish, then by the French, and for many years was effectively the western frontier of the thirteen colonies (a number of counties in Eastern and Middle Tennessee were considered part of North Carolina for a time). Early surveys of the region were performed by the traditional metes-and-bounds surveying method, identifying borders by physical landmarks. In 1806, the Tennessee Assembly attempted to implement a survey system similar to the new Public Land Surveying System being used by other territories at the time, and even subdivided the state Districts into five- and six-mile square tracts of land. However, the system was never fully implemented, and individual tracts of land continued to be surveyed using the metes-and-bounds system for many years after. Quite a few of these old documents have survived to this day, and remain on file with the state.
Land Surveying In Tennessee Today
While Tennessee land surveyors today utilize technology that allows for much greater accuracy than the surveying methods of old, they still refer to historical records where they exist. Much of the surveying today involves verifying and correcting boundaries, as well as subdividing or consolidating parcels of land as needed. Examinations and licensing of surveyors in the state are overseen today by the Tennessee Board of Examiners for Land Surveyors. Our team of surveyors is duly licensed by this board to conduct surveys throughout the state.
